The Best of China: Beijing, Xi’an & Shanghai
Emirates has announced plans to begin flying to Cambodia’s capital Phnom Penh in July 2017.
Phnom Penh, Cambodia is the latest addition to the Emirates’ flight portfolio. The carrier will serve Cambodia with daily flights from July this year using a Boeing 777-300ER in a two-class configuration, Business and Economy.
The route will coincide with the launch of a direct non-stop service between Dubai and Vietnam’s capital Hanoi. The flight between Dubai and Hanoi previously stopped in Yangon, Myanmar, but this stop will now be served by the new Phnom Penh service. Emirates says they will be the only airline with a direct service between these two cities, creating city links for the locals.
Emirates will time the departures of the Phnom Penh service to connect with those arriving from London, Paris and Frankfurt.
Phnom Penh is the most populous city in Cambodia and home to the UNESCO World Heritage Site Angkor Wat. With the growing interest in Cambodia from UK travellers, Emirates hope that by introducing this route they will be able to capitalise on the increasing tourism.
